Foreword
Plum Senior High School offers a comprehensive curriculum which provides students the capability to individualize schedules to best prepare for post-secondary aspirations. Parents are encouraged to communicate with both teachers and counselors during the scheduling process. In many cases, the selection of classes can be a simple task, but with others, it can prove to be challenging. Class selection should be based on academic success, academic interest, post-secondary aspirations and input from parents, teachers, and School Counselors.
We sincerely hope that the upcoming school year will provide countless positive learning experiences.
